HANNAH J. BOWS

 

Assistant Professor in Criminal Law at Durham Law School, Durham University and deputy-director of the Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse (CRiVA). My research interests are broadly located in the fields of gender, ageing and crime, with particular interests in crimes against, and by, people age 60 and over. My current research funded through a British Academy Wolfson Fellowship is examining criminal justice outcomes and decision making in cases involving older adults. Outside of academia, I sit as a magistrate in County Durham and Darlington and I am the Chair of Age UK Teesside.
